Dot & Mae: Delusions of Grandeur
Regina charmers Lucy Hill and Judy Wensel have a strong base for this high-energy improvised comedy, playing 1940s nurses Dot and Mae, who take on multiple personalities as they make their rounds in a psychiatric hospital.
As suggested by audience members before the one-hour session begins, their patients are an eclectic bunch, but there are common elements to all the sketches; each character has a passion and they’re all encouraged to take a risk. Improv can be a hit-and-miss proposition, but judging by their opening-night escapades, it’s worth taking a chance on Dot and Mae.
— Pat St. Germain
From the Fringe program:
It's 1947 and Dot and Mae are birds of a feather. Two working girls gallivanting their way through love, lust, professional obligation, joyful misunderstanding... and psychiatric nursing.
Combining polished theatricality and dynamic improvisation, Dot and Mae venture between the everyday world of Ward A and the fantastical delusions of the patients who live there.
This dynamic improv duo have toured to Globe Theatre, General Fools Improv Festival, Vancouver International Improv Festival, and Duofest.
